Owning a horse is a dream-come-true for many. Daily caring for a horse, riding, connecting, bonding – these are some of the joys of horse ownership. Horse lovers enjoy the freedom and thrill of connecting with a horse. Not just controlling the animal, but becoming a partner with the horse.
Horse ownership may not be realistic for everyone. But a week of Horsemanship Camp at Warm Beach in Stanwood, Washington, gives a taste of horse ownership and much more. Horsemanship Camp is first of all about learning to safely and responsibly care for and ride horses. It is also a time for friends and fun activities.
This summer, Warm Beach Camp is adding more riding time into the schedule in the mornings and evenings. Riding lessons occur both in the arena and on the trail each morning. A horse science ground class will be offered in the afternoons. Evenings feature mounted options such as drill team, vaulting, and trail riding. In addition to all the horse time, campers also go swimming, do crafts, and experience the personal challenge of the climbing tower and high ropes course (ages 12+). Mounted games, such as pole bending and barrel classes, will test the rider’s balance, harmony, and horse control. Level 2 and above riders have a chance to apply their riding skills in team sorting cattle. New this year is an opportunity for Level 2 and above riders to learn some English riding. The week’s schedule is packed with horse and horse-related activities. Horsemanship Camp sample schedule
A graduated riding instruction curriculum is taught by Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) trained staff. Whether a rider comes as a complete beginner or with experience, there’s an appropriate class scaled to their riding ability.
Campers will have amazing fun learning new skills that apply not only to riding but also to life. For more information and to register for Warm Beach Horsemanship Camp Horsemanship Camps
